Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Pest infestation is always a possibility when you live in Aroona. It is a beautiful, peaceful suburb but also offers ideal conditions that attract pests, such as mosquitoes, spiders, termites, etc.

Termite Control in Aroona

These tiny insects are often mistaken for ants, but termites are much more invasive and destructive. If they are left untreated, termites will cause extensive damage to property that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in repair.

They can multiply fast because the queen of the colony can lay millions of eggs every year. Termites are attracted by numerous items including moisture, landscaping timber, stumps, damaged drainage, tree limbs that are close to homes, and more.

These are all things that are easily found all over Australia that it’s safe to say that termites are inevitable if property owners become careless. Properties built in the high-risk areas for termites should undergo annual inspection as a preventive measure.

Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes are one of the deadliest insects in the world as they are carriers of deadly diseases including Zika virus, Malaria and Dengue. These blood-sucking insects can also affect the health of your pets. They carry pathogens that cause heartworm, which can be transmitted through bites.

Because they are flying insects, regular pest control services is highly suggested to eliminate their regular shelter and disrupt their breeding cycle.

Ant Control in Aroona

Warm sunny climate, like what the Sunshine Coast have, is preferred by most ant species. It is difficult to track ants because their nests can be located a long and are usually hard to find.

Ants can become a nuisance because they can contaminate food and it is just unsightly to see ants crawling everywhere in your house. One of the areas in the home where ants can be found is the kitchen because it is where food is stored and prepared. However, ants can also be found where pets eat and in outdoor entertaining areas.

Ants will travel far and wide to search for food. One of the most effective ways to keep ants away is to store your food in airtight containers, so ants won’t be able to find it.

Rodent Control in Aroona

While Aussies enjoy a warm climate year-round with a lot of sunshine and regular rainfall, rats and mice are enjoying it too.

Mice are more common in the home than rats. They can build a nest in your roof or in the walls of your home and squeeze through small gaps to make their way around. Rodents are always searching for food as well as gnaw wood, cardboard and practically any time to keep their continuously growing incisors in check.

Aside from being carriers of serious diseases, rodents can also contaminate food. To minimise the probability of rodent infestation, keep your food in tight containers and never leave food scraps lying around.

Spider Control

Spider control has two goals: the prevention of bites, some of which can be fatal, and the prevention of web build-up, which is unsightly and creates a mess. Spiders don’t bite unless provoked, but avoiding them is still the smartest thing to do.

There are different species of spiders. Each of them has different characteristics and creates various problems for humans. If you’re dealing with spiders, it’s best to call a qualified pest control technician who can identify the species and recommend the most effective treatment and control strategy.

Wasp Control

Wasps and wasp nests are a problem to all inhabitants of a property. Even the slightest disturbance will make them attack, which delivers painful – and sometimes deadly – bites. There are thousands of wasp species, but only a few are considered pests.

If you see wasp nest in or around your property, call the experts to do the job to make sure it is done safely and effectively.

Bald Knob Termite Hazard Level

High – Very High Risk

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Sunshine Coast area, where Aroona is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.

Because Aroona is close to the sea, the area is a good target by drywood termites, which need high moisture content in the timber they attack.

Throughout Queensland, the most commonly found termites are Subterranean termites and Drywood termites.

The West Indian drywood termite, is the world’s most destructive drywood termite. It is the culprit to massive economic damage to timber houses in Queensland, including properties in Aroona.

  • A coastal environment like Wynnum is prone to termite and vermin attacks.

  • The number one thing that attracts termites is water or moisture. It is almost a guarantee that if a home has water leakage problems, it will soon be invaded by termites, if it hasn’t been already.

  • Damage to homes, whether made from weatherboard, is likely if termites, or white ants, are left unchecked.
